Hi, what are you looking for?

Weekly Injection


Kind of a slower week for y'all. A few solid droppings from your record label overlords though. These include weird avant Norway fellas, live Swedish Melo-death chaps, and more!

Dodheimsgard – A Umbra Omega 91v7R9-zEqL._SL1500_

Genre: Avant-garde metal
Origin: Oslo, Norway
Label: Peaceville

Buy now on

Very weird and awesome. Imagine if Enslaved mixed with renown avant-garde jazz legend John Zohn and a slower Anaal Nathrakh. You'd get pretty close to these guys.


Moonspell – Extinct 91lqHNTDtIL._SL1500_

Genre: Gothic metal
Origin: Brandola, Portugal
Label: Napalm

Buy now on

Portugal's epic collective known as Moonspell have returned with more driving gothic jams to perk up your doomy day. This would pair well with Borknagar and Tyr. Also, these guys have a rather fun video below that has some neat ritualistic break dance fighting stuff going on.


The Order of Apollyon – The Sword and the Dagger 81Z9SNuudxL._SL1500_

Genre: Death metal
Origin: Paris, France
Label: Listenable

Buy now on

Since the last two highlighted releases have you feeling weird and/or vampiric, here's a kick in the teeth. France's The Order of Apollyon aren't reinventing the blackened death metal wheel, but they are certainly able to do this genre right. This is a tremendous sophomore release.


Pyramids – A Northern Meadow a4095720660_10

Genre: Experimental doom
Origin: Texas
Label: Profound Lore

Buy now on Bandcamp

I can't say that I've ever heard anything like Pyramids. They work in elements of many genres, and do so at the same time. Whether it be black metal, doom, industrial, shoegaze, beautiful post rock and so much more. I highly recommend this release for those looking for something different.


Soilwork – Live in the Heart of Helsinkisoilworkhelsinkidvdcover_638

Genre: Melodic death metal
Origin: Helsingborg, Sweden
Label: Nuclear Blast

Buy now on

The Living Infinite really restored my faith in Soilwork. I grew to be pretty bored of their work over the albums before their double release, yet I missed them on the tour that followed what became my favorite Soilwork record. It's awesome to relive the tour through this release with new faves and classics.
